Digital Dialogue

Digital Dialogue

If voice were...
a color
an animal
a season
a type of food
a favorite piece of clothing
a facial expression
what would it be?

An example:
"If voice were a favorite piece of clothing, it would be my smelly old sneakers because they have gone through the mud, rain, and endless hours of running on the playground. They are worn and dirty and just feel like 'me' whenever I put them on."

Technology Interview Questions

Answer as many as you wish!

1)What piece of technology would you most hate to give up in 5th grade? Make sure you explain why!

2)How do you learn more with technology? How do you learn differently? How does technology help your learning?

3) If we could do more projects and lessons that involved technology tools, what would you want to do more of? Again, tell why!


We experienced a real-life power outage last Friday morning. What would happen if we didn't get our electricity back on for a long time? Imagine that we have to go to school for a week without any electricity at all. How would school be different? What could we do to still learn and grow for a week in a blackout?

20 inches of snow...Happy Spring!

Wow, what a long weekend! If someone would have told me that we'd get so much snow this late in March, I would never believe them! But it happened, so tell me about your weekend. Did the snow ruin any of your plans, or were you just completely jubilant to get 2 1/2 more snow days this school year? What did you do to celebrate? (And how do you feel about school in June?)
